Neutral palmbob On Aug 17, 2011, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

Saudi Arabian species. Solitary, stemless with numerous upright leaves in tight rosettes. Flowers usually yellow but can be red. Needs full sun. In my limited experience, this is a very slow grower and not too tolerant of a lot of shade (rots easily)
